ROC is the first clinic in the UK to make available to its patients a groundbreaking modality for assessing an individual’s risk for heart attacks and strokes. To read more about the Angiodefender® and how this tool can be utilized to monitor the effect of lifestyle changes on your heart age click here.

You do not have wait until you develop signs of heart disease before seeing a doctor. Heart Disease takes years to develop and preventative measures should be implemented early on. An early cardiac check can identify your individual risk profile and our doctors can advise you on how to tackle your risk factors.

Cardiac Health Screening is for people who want to be proactive about their health, people with relevant risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, being overweight, or anyone with a family history of any of the following:

  • Deaths at a young age

Certain populations are at higher risk of developing heart disease and as such we offer an exclusive Asian Cardiac Health Check for all men and women over the age of 18, with origins from the South Asian subcontinent (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh). Heart disease in such populations usually develops in the 20s. Please click here to find out more about heart disease in the South Asian population.

Whether you wish to have a personalised cardiovascular check or you have a specific cardiac condition you wish to seek advice on, our staff will be able to help. Your family history, your origins and personal history and habits will all be taken into consideration.
